Having read all the wonderfull review i really expected much beter especially regarding the bass.
They do look very Nice and are very comfortable but way too weak considering the sound, first time I put them on I kept elevating the volume and then trying the different switches (4 positions regarding bass) and I really thought they were defect....thinking maybe I mist a power boost switch somewhere.
I love bass and I own a pair of Beat ....no comparison at all....way way way too weak.

King of bass, jack of all trades, master of none. 4 Dec 2013
By Kodack - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Disclaimer, I'm a Beyerdynamic fanboy but my review is critical.

I started with the 880 and life was good.

I acquired a 990 and found the first headphones Id ever heard that needed 0 EQ to sound optimal. They are still my go to cans.

I've heard great things about the Custom One Pro and so I picked up a pair hoping to knock the 990's off their pedestal.

Packaging: A 1 meter cable, manual, catalog, and that's it. No allen key for the face plates and no bag. Despite the premium price they do not have the soft case like the 880's and 990's did. Packaging was adequate and they arrived un damaged.

Features: The adjustable bass ports do make a lot of difference. Each setting drasticly changes the sound. These settings do NOT replicate 880, 990, 770, etc. The only thing that changes is 200hz and lower.

Cabling: A first for these style of headphones, they now have a removable cable. Which is good because the included one is far too short. They really thought only ipod users were going to buy these. The cable uses a headphone jack and should work with many after market cables. IE no mini xlr and so AKG cables won't work. The cable does partially lock in using a friction mount.

Earpads: They went with a soft lambskin type of synthetic. Good news for other Beyerdynamic owners, they appear to fit my 990's and hence the 880's as well. A nice feature is a divot cut out of the top of the ring which makes putting the ear pads back on a breeze. Push and twist, it works like those things that take tires off your rims. The cushioning is a little more robust than the 880/990 and they are very comfortable. They form a seal around your ear that is air tight. This causes you to hear your own voice, breathing, similar to IED's and with the bass ports closed you get a plunger effect that can be disconcerting if they are pushed or pulled as it moves your ear drum. They block outside sound quite well but pick up cable noise. IE touch the cable or any part of the headphone and you hear it loudly.

Headband: They went with a velcro enclosure using the micro hook and loop which is much thinner and doesn't fray like old style velcro. There is a conspicuous seam though where the two halves meet. It is softer than the button on one on my 990's and superior to the zip lock one on my 880's. The construction is identical to the 880 and 990 and I would be very surprised if the parts were not fully interchangeable.

Sound: Now for the bit you've been waiting for. Yeah they look nice and feel nice but how do they sound?

They sound constricted. I have other closed cans like the Sony MDRV6 and Sennheiser 428 but I never really noticed the tin can sound like I do with the C.O.P. Don't get me wrong, they sound fantastic but the sound stage is drasticly compressed compared to my open backed 990's and the way sound echos around inside the closed cans affects phasing which leads to a false sense of colored sound even though a sine wave sweeper shows these to be relatively flat.

The best way to describe the sound is that these are circum aural that sound like in ear entymotic headphones. And I'm pretty sure this is a result of the air tight seal from the ear pads. After I have broken them in some more I plan to put on some of the velour pads from my 990's to see if it improves the sound.

Over all I found the sound to be less linear than the 990 with a strong mid range (in spite of others reviews to the contrary) but a recessed upper to high range. This comes across as a bump around 2-3khz and a dip around 8-9khz which makes for smoother but less crisp highs. In my listening tests I had the 990's and COP's on my head and powered by the same FiiO amp so I could quickly swap back and forth and the difference in clarity, sizzle, and crispness was readily apparent. Some people find the 990's highs to be a little harsh so your mileage may vary and you may prefer the COP's recessed sound but I think the 990's are perfect headphones.

There is a serious bump in the 100-200hz range but because of the sound characteristics it doesn't appear very colored which makes it tolerable.

So what does the COP do better than any other Beyerdyamic? It has bass. Great heaping, slathered in gravy, towering above the mix, waves of bass. In the fully closed position the sound below 60hz pretty much drops off the face of the earth and they sound anemic not to mention that it strangles the drivers leading to a dead sound and no sound stage. At position 4 the infrasonics of these headphones are un-matched. They put Sony Xbass to shame. They make the Sennheiser 428's sound like your grandmas headphones. With sinegen I found the extension went all the way down to 15hz without much noticable drop in level. At 20hz these are clear and loud even at low volume.

Most bass type headphones sacrifice the over all sound in order to deliver good bass but not the COP. These may be the first bass maniac headphones I've ever heard that don't color the sound excessively and work just as well for classical or jazz.

A jack of all trades these are but master of none. While Jazz and classical are enjoyable, swapping back to my 990's was like pulling cotton out of my ears. The one exception is the acoustic bass used in jazz trios. The extension and infrasonics of these headphones let you hear every dusty note of the bass. I could feel the rosin flying off the string and floating in the air.

In position 4 the headphones also lose some of that tin can closed sound and start to open up. I think they would sound their best in position 4 with some attenuation of the bass with EQ to keep the open sound but flatten out the response.

Overall impression and critical listening:

Setup: Audioengine D1 into FiiO desktop amp. Fubar 320kbps MP3 and FLAC, COP at position 2.

Tracks: Dave Brubeck "Take Five" - Very good bass extension and an enjoyable sound. Suffers from recessed upper mids with the hi-hat chick being more muted, less cymbal sizzle, and less stick noise in percussion. Piano had a nice bottom end and sounded just as warm. Swapping over to my 990's was like pulling stuffing out of my ears and dialing the bass back.

Beginning audiophile headphones 7 Dec 2013
By David Fuentes - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
These are a great value for less than the $200 range. These headphones usually go under the price of $200 which is the value of these headphones.

Comfort and design: 3/5 on Comfort and 5/5 on Design
These cans are remarkably built for $200 cans. The design is slick and clean. These headphones are built of half velcro/leather and metal. These cans aren't very comfortable though. I hate the clamping headphones on these cans. At first, I couldn't wear these for longer than 1 hour tops. I had to take them off ,and I would find myself keeping them off. The COP's pleather (fake leather) earpads make my ears hot and sweaty. I would say I have an average sized head and ears ,and these fit decently. To find better comfort I would recommend getting the stock Beyerdynamic DT770 earpads. Suede has better comfort, and I believe pleather earpads get too hot and sweaty for me.

Packaging and Accessories: 4/5
The packaging includes: The headphones, 1/4" adapter, and warranty and manuel. No case but I believe these aren't portable headphones. These headphones don't get much more than an average set of headphones for the price of $200. The box shows a couple of specs ,and it shows the FR of this headphone.

Sound: 4/5

These have amazing sound. I have only tried them with my iPod and iMac. I have approximately 100+ of burn in time. For maximum "burn in" leave these overnight playing music while you're sleeping. I can't believe the burn in time made such a difference. I guess it's because the drivers need to be loosened up to reach their full potential. I can't stress enough that these cans won't sound good enough until the 50hr "burn in" time.

Bass Ports:

The 1st port is the most neutral sound that audiophiles tend to prefer. The 1st port is for people that want a less bassy ,more neutral sound. The 2nd port loosens up the bass ,and gives off a more fun sound. The 3rd port to me is the best port to leave the headphones on. I read reviews on the COP ,and I tend to agree that the 3rd port gives the COP the best sound. With the 3rd port the sound is bassy ,but it's not too neutral or too bassy. The 4th port is for the people that want to hear their heads shake from the bass. With the 4th port, you get the beyerdynamic bass most people love. It is strong in all the songs, but maybe the 4th port's bass is too overpowering in some songs. If you want to hear the bass switch over to the 4th port or maybe you want neutral clear sound so switch over the 1st port. It makes a difference in the bass ports slots ,so I would highly recommends these to people that listen to any type of music.


The highs sound clear ,and have the sound that is great. The highs are really great in this headphone, and I tend to enjoy the highs, lows, and bass most in this headphone. At times though, the highs would blend in with the mids. This would happen rarely ,but I did notice it in some songs. The highs are great ,and I can't complain much.


This is the part in which these cans struggle. The mids are recessed. I hate that the mids are recessed, but I did notice that the mids were recessed after comparison's with other cans. The weak point in this headphone is the mids and the treble. Still the mids are good ,but are not the star of the show. I wish they made a revision of this headphone with more foreword mids and treble. The mids aren't noticably bad unless you compare them too higher end cans ranging from $400. I didn't find them to be that bothersome when I had the COP's.

Lows and Bass:

This is where the headphone's excel. Beyerdynamic is know for their hard hitting bass. The bass is strong and gets better on the 4th port. The lows are great, and I enjoy the headphones that reproduce tight, clean bass. The lows make the headphones shake on a hard hitting bass song. I take off my headphones off sometimes and push the pads together,and it kind of rumbles. On hard hitting bass songs I can fell the bass moving the cans. The lows are great, and the headphones don't have bloated ,and uncontrolled bass. Beyerdynamic headphones are great for lows and bass.


The treble is just as recessed as the mids. I tend to love sparkly treble. I hate headphones that have that "laid back" or ear piercing treble. The treble would be gone in some songs. Like I said earlier in the review though, I didn't notice it until I compared with higher end cans. The treble isn't the best ,but it was there when you needed it in songs.

These headphones are amazing for the price. These benefit from an amplifier, but can get distorted at high volumes do to the 16 OHM Impedance. These are easily driven by a small Fiio E6.

Comparison: Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro vs. Sennheiser HD558

I had to sell the COP's due to wanting anther headphone. I bought a used Sennheiser HD 558, but I used the money from the COP's to buy the Sennheiser's. Do I prefer the senneheiser's to the COP's? At times yes, due to the clarity of the sennheiser's ,but I do miss that hard hitting bass of the COP's. I can't do a full comparison ,but I do have a great memory of the COP sound.


The highs from the sennheiser's are better due to the clarity of the sennheiser's. Like I said earlier in the review, the highs of the COP would bleed into the mids. From memory this would happen with some songs, but not all. For the highs the sennheiser's would be better than the COP's.

Sennheiser HD558: 1 Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro: 0


I think you can guess which headphone will this round. Sennheiser's have the best mids I have ever heard in a headphone. The COP's lose badly due to the recessed mids. The sennheiser mids are the keypoint in that headphone.

Sennheiser HD558: 2 Beyerdynamic Custome One Pro: 0


The lows are amazing on the COP's ,while not so much on the sennheiser's. The senneheiser barley pass the test on the lows, but the COP's excel on the low end.

Sennheiser HD558: 2 Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro: 1


This round is just as unfair as the mids comparison. The COP's are centered around bass heavy sound, so they obviously win this round. Sennheiser's don't have hard hitting bass, but they do provide tight, clean bass.

Sennheiser HD558: 2 Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro: 2


Both headphone lack in treble synergy. Both have not recessed ,but laid back treble. From memory though I might prefer the sennheiser's ,while the other day I might prefer the COP"s.

Sennheiser HD558: 3 Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro: 3

Soundstage and Imaging:

Senneheiser's win this round with ease. The sennheiser sound is based on clarity and soundstage. Sennheiser's flagship headphone is the HD800 which is possibly the "King of Soundstage". The COP's had average sounding soundstage ,but closed cans always lose to open cans in soundstage. Kind of unfair, so I will not count this towards the sennheiser''s.

Sennheiser HD558: 3 Beyerdynamic Custome One Pro: 3

Both are amazing headphones, and I would love to have both. I had to sell the COP's to buy the HD558's ,and somedays I regret that. Other days I don't , but both are great headphones under the $200 range.

great headphones but they could have done a few things better 11 Aug 2014
By Andrew Dominguez - Published on Amazon.com

by far the most comfortable over ear headphones you might ever own. however if its hot out the stock leather ear cups can make the experience rather unpleasant u might consider the the velour ear cups replacement that will let them breath i currently am using them with the beats pro wire because the wire that comes with it is unattractive the beats mixers wire also works well with them also fun to play with the bass ports (depending on the song) the mids are a little layed back but the rest of the spectrum is relatively flat

very comfortable
great sound / adjastable to your liking
good bass when you want
build quality

cons :
they are huge
there is no way to fold or make them more portable
i really wish it came with a hard case

Great headphones but beware the ultra flimsy but "replaceable" 3.5 mm audio cables 29 Nov 2013
By chucelot - Published on Amazon.com
Edited 12/25/2013:

1. Awful audio cable (it breaks at the slightest tug, had mine for 2-3 weeks and it's already dead).
2. Does not collapse (it's a minor thing, you can't really fit it in your bag as easily). It's a minor thing

1. Superior comfort for hours (it is winter so maybe the summer heat might affect my opinion)
2. Sound quality is great (note, I'm not an audiophile and I'm coming from some cheap $60 headphones from 2007)

Solution for the cables ([...]
I ordered these 'kevlar reinforced' cables, and I personally thing these are a must have.
I accidentally yanked on them on many occasions and its working great

Amazing 16 Dec 2013
By Sam - Published on Amazon.com

These headphones are beautiful, extremely comfortable, and sound great. I used these for music from my phone and pc gaming. It did both excellent. However after a few days of light use the right channel started to not sound as loud as the left and on bass notes it gave an annoying rattle sound. I may have just gotten a bad unit so I am not deducting stars. I returned them to Amazon with no problems. As much as I loved them I decided to go with the dt 990's instead of a replacement.

If you want a portable headphone that looks awesome these are it. I am no audiophile so I am not getting into all of that stuff but the bass in the left ear was great and it seamed to handle all of the other ranges fine.
